Beginning couples counseling and facing fears in our most intimate relationship can be intimidating and scary. As your therapist, I earn your trust through our work together and invite you into deeper places to find more compassion and connection in your partnership.
If you are looking to free your relationship from painful cycles and stuck places we can work together to help your relationship grow into the one you are longing for. In couples therapy, you grow together, while simultaneously growing into more authenticity, vulnerability, and compassion as individuals. We all learned to protect ourselves in relationships in various ways and as your therapist, I can help you identify your protective patterns and find new ways of responding to one another that offer more security and safety in your connection. As humans, we are wired to need safe and secure connections - it is essential to our survival.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is based on attachment science and is empirically supported and named the gold standard intervention for couples therapy by the American Psychological Association.
I understand how scary it can be to start couples counseling. As your therapist, it is my job to help guide you through this process and I am dedicated to holding your relationship with the greatest care.
